2:17 pm
you. >> good afternoon councilmembers i'm happy to be here i'm the long-term care principal investigator and i'm also the facility facilitator i'm here today to present the long-term integration strategic plan for san francisco. this is the result of a great deal of work. i'm going to give you background information on why it was prepared and then tell you something about what the recommendations are to be accomplished in the next two years so this is background for you. information about what the long-term care design group is recommending and a heads up about what's coming because this is a big deal. so let me
2:18 pm
start out. this is a presentation that ordinarily would be given by a long-term care design group member this plan was prepared by the long-term care design group members for the department of aging and adult services i am not on the design group i facilitated that work and i'm presenting it to you today. next slide, please. oh, it's me. next slide please. [laughter]. okay. what is the purpose of the long-term integration strategic plan? it's to prepare for the transition to long-term care integration in san francisco and to determine what is required to improve the provision of long-term services and supports for medical eligible older adult and see adults are disabilities. this
2:19 pm
is targeting people who are what are called dual eligible eligible for both medicare or medical and medicare. what is long-term care integration? what does that phrase mean? it means the integration of primary and acute care services with long-term services and supports as well as institutional care. so we're talking about bringing the medical model together with the social services model, and they will both be provided by managed care health plans to this population, the dual eligibles, those who are eligible for med ical and medicare so an older population
2:20 pm
as well as a population with disabilities as well as populations who are older so it's a mix. this plan was prepared because california has instituted a coordinated care initiative. in january of 2012 governor jerry brown introduced the coordinated care initiative. its purpose across the state of california is to improve coordinate and coordination of service delivery for consumer satisfaction of the groups i mentioned and at the same time substantial savings so they want to shift where services are provided. i
2:21 pm
should tell you that the coordinated care initiative is tied to the affordable care act. this is an implementation of an aspect of the affordable care act in the state of california. the affordable care act is intended to reduce the overall costs of healthcare and 15 states, including california, are designing integrated care models while the coordinated care initiative is california's demonstration project under the ac a. coordinated care initiative requirements beneficiaries who also qualify will be enrolled into managed care health plans for their medical benefits. i
2:22 pm
just want to review at a minimum, at a minimum. ihss, mssp the multipurpose senior citizens program and community based services and skilled nursing facilities will be included and provided through managed care health plans there will be many other services and supports as well but those are required mandatory. the goals of calmedi connect -- we'll talk more about calmedi connect just for a bit. to increase access use a person centered approach coordinate benefit and see increase the availability of home and community based
2:23 pm
services. also to maximize the ability of dual eligibles to remain in their home and see homes instead of institutional care and preserve consumer's ability to self direct their care. so where is calmedi connect starting in california? in 2014 the first 8 counties or the pilot demonstration project in this statal alameda, san diego orange, san mateo river side and santa clara so those count ies are now getting up to speed integrating medicare and medical funds for
2:24 pm
the target populations in those counties to be served through managed care health plans. alameda county is doing an enormous amount of work we're tracking those closely. in 2016 there will be 8 other counties included san francisco we anticipate will be one of those counties in 2016 so what we're doing now is to take this time to get ready to learn what's happening in the other 8 county ies so that we can do the best possible job for all of the people who are going to be transitioning to this demonstration project in san francisco. san francisco is what is known as a two plan model. we have the san
2:25 pm
francisco health plan which some of you may have heard of which is the public option and we have anthem blue cross which is the commercial plan and we have a third option the pace program provided through on lock so those 3 options will be available for the target population that i mentioned older adults who are dually eligible and they will enroll either by choice or they will be passively enrolled. let's talk about numbers. the numbers of people we're talking about in san francisco the dual eligible medicare dual eligible means medicare and medical over
2:26 pm
10 thousand people the same population 65 and up so we're talking almost 45,000 people this is a lot of people who are going to be served through these managed care programs. primary and acute care and long-term services and supports so that's a lot of background. that's why this plan is prepared the coordinated care initiative was introduced in 2012, 8 counties getting started in 2014 it's coming to san francisco in 2016 and it's part of the affordable care act at the federal level so that's all background. what is san francisco doing to prepare for this? the department of aging and adult services in collaboration with the long-term care coordinating counsel created the long-term care integration design group
2:27 pm
and that includes dos, department of public health, the human services agency the 3 health plans i mentioned, and a number of key community service providers. i should say although he can not be here today i wish he was -- but could not make it herb levine also on the long-term care coordinating counsel served on the long term care design group representing adults with disabilities. what we did in this process was build relationships that we didn't have before. we didn't know the san francisco health plan, the department of aging adult services staff didn't know them we didn't know anthem blue cross so this 12 month process gave us a chance to build relationships which is crucial as we move down the road.
2:28 pm
people had their say we did what's called a swat analysis strength weaknesses opportunities and threats and how can we improve the weaknesses and deal with the threats so we have the strongest possible system. i'm going over now not in detail but an overview of some of the recommendations time doesn't permit me to go over 13 objectivelies and 25 recommendations in detail. joanna said i can't do it you can look at them later but i'm going over an overview of them. >> improved access to information. that's going to be crucial so older adults across the city understand what's coming. better access to information about long-term service and see supports. what
2:29 pm
this plan recommends is that the integrated intake unit at the department of aging and adult services be the central door not the only door to get information about long-term services and support so anybody can call up and that can be the bridge to the health plans so that people can get the services they need. we want to continue to use and examine best practice models like the community living fund and the diversion and community integration program. are you all familiar with those two programs? a little bit? none. the community living fund is a program of the department of aging and adult services in the baseline budget now i think it's about 2 to 3 million dollars used to help people move
2:30 pm
out of the institutional settings and back to their homes and communities. it's much the same thing a collaboration between the department of public health and dos and community based service providers where they take person by person by person and work out the details to make sure they are able to live in the community so we want to continue to look at models like that and take advantage of them. we want to have greater caregiver support we want to strengthen family caregivers we want to have strategies to expand supports for independent care providers people who are socially isolated and develop respite services for caregivers especially people who are caring for someone with dementia
